MONSTER PARTY GETS BARBARIC!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, take a fresh claw swipe at a topic we did several years ago. But this time, we've got some new blood! If you want to know what goes into trodding the boards of a horror movie set, have a listen to this sinister seminar of sound we call... MONSTER ACTING VOL. 2!!!
In MONSTER ACTING VOL. 1, we got a look from inside the creature suit with monster acting (and every other kind of acting) legend... DOUG JONES. This time, we've booked a shining new talent who is the star of the smash hit horror film, BARBARIAN... MATTHEW PATRICK DAVIS!!!
Alhough BARBARIAN is Matthew's breakout film, he's no novice at monster acting, playing a hilarious zombie in a SPRINT commercial, James Corden's new Alien Xenomorph girlfriend on THE LATE LATE SHOW, and the "Geek" in the Broadway production of SIDE SHOW!
But Davis is more than just an amazing actor! He's an accomplished musician and composer who has written music for the DISNEY JR. shows, THE GHOST AND MOLLY McGEE and T.O.T.S., as well as parody mini-musicals of JURASSIC PARK, and THE SHINING!
SO STRAP YOURSELVES IN FOR "THE MOTHER" OF ALL MONSTER PARTY PODCASTS!
NOTE: THIS EPISODE HAS QUITE A FEW "BARBARIAN" SPOILERS, SO WE SUGGEST WATCHING THE FILM BEFORE LISTENING. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

THE SMACKDOWN HAS RETURNED, AND APPARENTLY, IT'S NOT WEARING A LEASH!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, return once again to a MONSTER PARTY fan-favorite topic that is not only informative, but occasionally combative. Prepare to push your fragile psyche to the limit, as we present... THE MAD MOVIE SMACKDOWN UNLEASHED!!!
As you may already be aware, the rules are simple. We all take turns thumbing through our beloved collection of genre reference books (remember books?), randomly stopping on a page, and blindly pointing to a film entry. After that, we partake in a lively discussion about the movie, with a bit of character assassination sprinkled in.
Joining us for this reference book romp, is someone new to "The Smackdown," but a longtime MONSTER PARTY favorite. He's a multiple RONDO AWARD winning filmmaker, and Blu-ray audio commentary staple. Please welcome back... CONSTANTINE NASR! (A GOOD GAME: KARLOFF & LUGOSI AT UNIVERSAL, THE ANIMAGIC WORLD OF RANKIN/BASS, WHEN DARKNESS CAME: THE MAKING OF 'THE MIST', SHADOWS IN THE DARK: THE VAL LEWTON LEGACY, MEL BLANC: THE MAN OF A THOUSAND VOICES, VAL GUEST: 'QUATERMASS' AND THE HAMMER EXPERIENCE, WALKING THE MILE, AND SO MANY MORE!)
THE SMACKDOWN IS BACK! BECAUSE THE WORLD NEEDS MORE THINGS THAT DON'T COMPLETELY SUCK.
